    If Your Going To Let The Sun Shine Where The Sun Dont Normally Shine...

    I'm out in the sun a lot so I'm somewhat tanned, not super dark but don't normally burn. Well, yesterday I went out to the pond (private) and decided to get an all over tan, forgot about sunscreen, and boy am I paying for it today. My naughty bits are hot pink in color and it...

    Hate It

    I use SPF50 and I still get burnt.  I also try to stay out of the sun midday and go in out of it as much as possible.

    On July 4th my family talked me into going to the lake. I decided to go since I don't get out much. I was swimming all day and really enjoyed it. After I got out I looked at my face and back; I looked like a tomato. The next morning I woke up with my face swollen and in blisters...

    I'm currently icing my face.

    .. I'm so sunburnt it's not even funny. Even my eyelids are burnt. Stupid me for falling asleep by the pool... You'd think someone would have the decency to wake me up! Urgh. The one time I wouldn't mind someone waking me up and no one does lol

    Sometimes it's nice being 'brown all year

    around' but being 'Red in July' is definitely a painful way to learn my lesson in a lack of SPF

    Tan is nice, but for me,

    I always get burned first. Not a fan of tan-lines or sunburn-lines. :( I don't like it when my chest or behind is a different color, because it always ends up showing somehow. Plus, I'm one of those people that even when I get tan, I look pale haha, so it's not worth it. That's...
